Building Together at the 2018 ASEE Annual Conference
The 2018 American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE) Annual Conference and Exposition will be held June 24–27, 2018, at the Salt Palace Convention Center in Salt Lake City, Utah. The ASEE Annual Conference is dedicated to all disciplines of engineering education and is committed to fostering the exchange of ideas, enhancing teaching methods and curriculum, and providing prime networking opportunities for engineering and technology education stakeholders. Many deans, faculty members, and industry and government representatives will be in attendance.
Building Together is a transformative investment by the A. James & Alice B. Clark Foundation that will propel the University of Maryland and the A. James Clark School of Engineering to the forefront of education and research worldwide by establishing and funding an array of scholarships and fellowships, professorships, and operational and capital projects. The Clark School will have a significant presence at this year’s conference to demonstrate the impact of this investment and showcase the college’s plans to galvanize the next generation of Terp engineers and thought leaders at UMD.
The ASEE conference features more than 400 technical sessions, with peer-reviewed papers spanning all disciplines of engineering education. The Clark School’s own engineering innovators will lead two technical sessions:
Fearless Entrepreneurship & Innovation
This session will highlight the ways that the Clark School has created an environment that fosters student competitions, risk-taking, and creativity.
The Unique First-Year Experience
This session will focus on the curriculum and teaching methods that put the Clark School at the forefront of first-year education and significantly decreased rates of attrition among undergraduates.
Conference attendees can also visit the Clark School at booth #807 in the exhibit hall and answer the question: What will YOU build?
